  • Editorial Note: Colonial Intimacies and Gendered Violence
    • Abstract: This issue begins with Tamara J. Walker's account of a brutal knife assault on a free negra laundress in colonial Peru by her former lover, a Spanish sailor. By describing the cosmopolitan port city of Callao as a colonial contact zone where Europeans, slaves, and free blacks mingled in the streets, the taverns, and also in the bedroom, Walker introduces three themes that will reappear throughout this issue: colonial intimacy, sexual honor, and gendered violence. In "That Is How Whores Get Punished," Walker analyzes the testimonies provided during the 1774 criminal case that followed the assault on the laundress Marcelina Cordova, revealing how honor-based violence in late seventeenth-century Latin America drew on ...

  • "That is How Whores Get Punished": Gender, Race, and the Culture of
           Honor-Based Violence in Colonial Latin America
    • Abstract: On 21 January 1774, in the Peruvian port city of Callao, a free negra and laundress named Marcelina Cordova accused Spanish sailor Francisco Antonio Thoribio Bracamonte of attacking her with a knife. Cordova provided her statement while confined to bed after undergoing extensive and painful surgery for her injuries; in it, she said that she and Thoribio Bracamonte had been in a relationship in the months leading up to the attack.1 But as Thoribio Bracamonte became increasingly jealous and abusive, Cordova told him she no longer wished to remain in the relationship and began trying to avoid contact. For a short while, she was successful in her efforts and managed to create distance between them. But then, on the ... Read More

  • The Body and State Violence, from the Harrowing to the Mundane: Chilean
           
    • Abstract: Imet Sylvia in the lobby of her law office in downtown Valparaíso, Chile. As we exited the antique elevator, I admired the ornately adorned walls and marble staircase that circled down four floors before we continued to Sylvia's office, which seemed austere by comparison. That we met at Sylvia's law office, rather than her home, was fitting. It signaled the sense of pride Sylvia took in her work, having had her studies interrupted first by a year of political imprisonment, followed by twenty years in exile. When on September 11, 1973, a military junta overthrew the government of Salvador Allende Gossens—the world's first democratically elected Marxist president—Sylvia was in her final year of law school at the ...

  • "Alien to my sex": Enslaved Women and Their Gendered Notions of Abuse in
           Eighteenth-Century Lima, Peru
    • Abstract: In May 1731, a civil lawsuit brought on behalf of María de la Soledad, an enslaved black woman from Lima, Peru, charged her owner with sevicia (abuse). According to court documents, Doña Paula Montaña had recently ordered Soledad to be locked in a panadería (bakery)—a fairly common occurrence for truant or disobedient slaves—and severely beaten (allegedly over five hundred lashes) without giving any indication as to why. This led Soledad's husband to request that she be allowed to seek out a new master, the punishment proscribed by Spanish law for masters found guilty of abusing a slave.1Four years later, Bartolina, another enslaved black woman, likewise sued her owner for abuse. Bartolina asserted that although ... Read More

  • An Almost Inconceivable Foe: Anglo-American Women and Violence against
           Colonial Authority in Seventeenth-Century New England
    • Abstract: Near the end of King Philip's War in 1678, Goodwife Harling of Marblehead, Massachusetts, was prosecuted, jailed, and fined for abusing military officers in the execution of their duties. When officers came to the Harling home to collect a fine against her husband for neglect of militia training, and to make sure the home was "provided with armes" as the law required, they met an obstacle in Goody Harling. Home alone, Harling grudgingly showed them her husband's weapons. She would not comply with the officers' demands to pay a fine in the form of specie or property, however, having already been subject to several rounds of additional taxes to fund the war. The war had also interrupted New England fishing and ... Read More

  • Class, White Women, and Elite Asian Men in British Courts during the Late
           Nineteenth Century
    • Abstract: On a cold, dark, rainy night in October 1885, Jenny Mighell from Brighton was strolling along the River Thames in London with her fiancé, Albert Baker. They passed another man who doffed his cap at the latter while addressing him as "Your Highness." Jenny Mighell thus discovered the true identity of the man she was about to marry. He was far from being an ordinary visitor to England; in fact, he was the sovereign ruler of the state of Johore at the southern tip of the Straits of Malacca, located nearly seven thousand miles away in Southeast Asia. Outside of England, Albert Baker was better known by his real name and newly acquired title, Sultan Abu Bakar.1 Despite Albert Baker's deception, Jenny Mighell continued ... Read More

Young Ms. Stieler had already spent a year in London studying English and was expecting to stay another when the war broke out, rendering her unwelcome in England. Rather than travel back to Austria, a journey that posed many dangers after the onset of war, or stay in London and face internment, Ida contacted an aunt and uncle in the United States who invited her to come live with them. On November 14, 1914, she boarded the Philadelphia and set sail from the port of Liverpool.1Over the course of her ten-day journey, Ida became close friends with a handful of Indian ... Read More

  • Reforming Girlhood in Colonial Lagos
    • Abstract: In Making Modern Girls, Abosede George offers an engaging and complex study of "girl-savers" in 1940s Lagos, Nigeria, and of the developmentalist colonial state that they helped call into being. George's central argument is that colonial interventions vis-à-vis juvenile delinquents, children in "moral danger," and girl hawkers, who sold food and other goods on the street, rendered the child as the "first category of native to emerge as a universal subject in Africa" (6). She is most concerned with the activities of the elite African women who participated in the Lagos Women's League and who took up the issue of girl hawking as part of an urban reform agenda. She also documents the work of the Colony Welfare Office ... Read More

  • Standing By Your Man: Wives in Nineteenth-Century Empires
    • Abstract: Twenty years after calls to connect histories of women, gender, and empire were set down in such works as the historian Clare Midgley's Gender and Imperialism and Nupur Chaudhuri and Margaret Strobel's Western Women and Imperialism, projects to identify and explore women "in empire" remain a rich field of research.1 The books reviewed here sit firmly within this domain. Marrying men who held office as governors took Susanna Rabow-Edling's women to Russian America (present-day Alaska) from the 1820s to the 1860s, while Verity McInnis's women married military officers serving in the American West and British India over the long nineteenth century (1818–1910). Marriage, as much as empire, is under scrutiny in these ... Read More

  • Exploring the Diverse Experiences of the Great War One Hundred Years Later
    • Abstract: Because of the centenary anniversary, the Great War has benefited from a wave of renewed attention. From 2014 to 2018 newspapers, archives, and museums have devoted special sections to recapping the events of the war and reminding us of the ways the war ushered in the modern era. The historiographical debate about women's experiences in the Great War has hinged on the issue of how the war affected women as a category; was it a monumental moment of change that opened up new roles or did it seem to provide opportunities that turned out to be ephemeral' Three recent publications push beyond the terms of this issue to highlight women's diverse wartime experiences and analyze the varying ways the war affected female ...

  • Organizing across Distance: Reconceiving US Postwar Women's Activism
    • Abstract: When in January 2017 hundreds of thousands of women and their allies gathered in Washington, DC, to protest the inauguration of Donald Trump, they came with considerable concerns about protecting the rights of women. Aerial photographs suggest the Women's March on Washington far outdrew the Trump inauguration held the day before, and marchers believed they had demonstrated their determination to organize against the threat of conservative political attack on decades of women's hard-earned legal rights. Also on display that Sunday afternoon in Washington, and at hundreds of "sister marches" held across the United States, was a complicated and contested history of post-World War II US women's activism that these ...
